Why thankyou kind peeps, being a scratchy old git I will try to curb my enthusiasm:h , what am I making,
40 pints Woodfordes Great Eastern Ale conditioning
1gal cranberry&WGJ
1gal Tropical juice&WGJ
1gal Tropical juice%RGJ
1gal Mango&Lychee
1gal Cherry&Berry juice
1gal Blackcurrant (from cordial)
5gal mixed fruit juices (5ltrs juices[2 of which Guava] + 5ltrs WGJ, 2ltrsRGJ)
{this is a blend that with the ingredients of the various cartons is tooooo long to put in full, but is in my recipe book} sufice to say it makes a darn good Rose', slight armpit smell at first from the guava but it goes after a few weeks, the result is like a medium dry white Zinfandel!!.
Too much wine under the bridge to list all that I have made:d, but a good few kits of various qualities lots of hedgerow stuff, juice wines currently in favour, had some failures(drain cleaner!):slp, there more to tell, but L8r.

Sorry Tom I don't have the recipe it comes in two cans as a kit with yeast inna box http://www.woodfordes.co.uk/shopping/ I don't know if they ship across the pond.
Taste, I'll have to drink some now!;) bear with me, hoppy aroma (fuggles?), slightly dry but not tannic, light and fresh on the tongue not over malted, there is a fruit connection but I'm only on the 6th bottle, (not tonight!:h), a pale/light brown ale(not brownale)/amber?, head clings to the glass must be plenty of crystal malt in there.
I'm afraid I am totally ignorant of US beers, apart from "Bud" if you like fizzy pop, fine, drink it!!.

Did you ever hear of a book called "Brewing Beers Like Those You Buy" by David Line?, excellent book, world beers in you cellar!.

Harry, being the inquisiotor that I am, I know there have not been any bears in the British Isles for hundreds of years. I have to wonder how you were given a nickname of an animal few Brits have ever seen.
